What are G-Suite's size limitations for sending and receiving email?

G-Suite currently limits email sending and receiving to the following sizes:
  • Receiving: 50 MB
  • Sending: 25 MB
Anyone that sends email to an ameslab.gov account that exceeds 50 MB will receive a bounceback stating the following:
Your message exceeded Google's message size limits. Please visit 552-5.2.3 https://support.google.com/mail/?p=MaxSizeError to view our size 552 5.2.3 guidelines.
 
If there is a need to attach files that are greater than 25 MB, there are a couple of options:
  1. Use CyBox to share the file out.
  2. Use Google Drive*

*There are current limitations with using Google Drive to share files with people outside of the organization.  If you wish to use Google Drive for this purpose, please contact EIS at 4-8348.  EIS will need to whitelist the domain of the person you are collaborating with.
